  • Descrição


    ** PLEASE NOTE, due to limited capacity, we are currently looking for people with experience in - building, carpentry, tiling, electrician work, stucco, and other areas of building. We are open to couples, with one person with building experience and the other who could cook, clean, and garden. We currently have an opening for 2 couples or 2 experienced individuals.

    About Us-
    Our farm is an off-grid, 86-acre sanctuary on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island, Hawaii. We are an intentional non-violent, regenerative agriculture, plant-based community. We have about 2 acres of permaculture gardens that needs caring for, as well as many building projects that have been started or we are looking to start in the next year. We currently have 6 permanent residents and a rotating group of 4-10 work-study folks. We have many animals including - rescue dairy cows, horses, a donkey, many dogs and cats, and two active bee hives. There is a meditation temple and many waterfall pools that are wonderful for swimming.

    Currently, we are in the building stages on the land and are looking for people to actively and enthusiastically participate in the building of this sanctuary with us. We are a working farm, and expect people who join us to work hard with us with a positive attitude. The environment can range from hot and sunny days, to rainy muddy days depending on the season. We are looking for people who are adaptable, self-aware and self-guided, mature, competent, and can manage their own physical and emotional needs.

    As an animal sanctuary, we don't allow for the consumption of meat on the land. Eggs and dairy are fine. We are a drug and alcohol-free space in our communal areas. We ask for no obvious or abundant use of any substances.

    We do not sell any farm produce, everything we grow is for the residents.

  • Ajuda


    We’re looking for people who feel confident and good about themselves, who have achieved a degree of emotional maturity, and who can get along with others in a group situation. We’re seeking people who enjoy the company of others, and are willing to ask for what they want and need.

    We have a variety of tasks on the landscape that need to be completed from gardening to assisting build projects. Something that you might be doing and that is very important is treating for fire ants. We do this every 3 months weather permitting.

    We have 2 acres of permaculture garden that needs to be cared for; weeding, planting, picking up mulch, some tree trimming.

  • Acomodação


    For two experienced builders & couples - the accommodation offered is our nicest place to stay on the land, a brand new room with a loft in a duplex unit, that is next to the community bathroom and community kitchen. We also have a small cabin with its own kitchen and bathroom for someone with experience who is willing to stay for longer to help us build.

    Our other work exchange accommodation is a 10ft x20ft Carport with an air mattress and tent/mosquito net. It is a "Glamping" style tent camping with food staples, access to a community kitchen, community bathroom, shower with hot water, electricity. There is limited access to wi-fi and limited cellphone service. We noticed that those with Verizon wireless have full bar signal strength. There are group dinners Monday through Thursday in the community kitchen.

    This island is beautiful and diverse! The Hamakua Coast is a remarkable drive. We are 17 miles north of the town Hilo, where there is an international airport. Hilo has a university campus, good restaurants, and a bay for surfing, snorkeling, and swimming. Our community has 2 kayaks. And some of the best beaches in Hawaii are only an hour away. Often people from the community are traveling down to Puna on the weekends for dances and events, and you're welcome to carpool with us. If you wanted to do more adventuring or have more autonomy, we would recommend renting a car, and there are many locals renting cars on the island.
